Worlds Today 23/10/10 – Mens & Womens Individual Apparatus – A Quick Round Up

What a busy day! The Womens Vault and Uneven Bars Event finals took place as well as the Mens Floor, Rings and Pommel Horse event finals.The results are below, click through to see the full results summary:

Beth Tweddle – Womens World Bars Champion

Alicia Sacramone – Womens World Vault Champion

Chen Yibing – Men’s World Rings Champion

Krisztian Berki – Men’s World Pommel Champion

Eleftherios Kosmidis – Men’s World Floor Champion

Fantastic results for Great Britain, I’m so glad that Beth Tweddle has retained her title on bars, it was such a shame that she didn’t qualify for the floor finals.I never doubted that she wouldn’t medal. Dan Purvis has really established himself at the World Championships this year, coming 5th in the All Around Finals and 3rd on Floor today. Louis Smith won a silver medal on Pommel, a fantastic achievement considering his disappointment last year and also for someone who didn’t eat breakfast this morning as he told Gabby Logan on BBC. I’ve been watching the coverage on BBC today, the recently injured Daniel Keatings is presenting with Logan and is doing a really great job. I’d look forward to hearing him commentating instead of Mitch and Christine in a few years.
